music for kids
because music is heard and not seen, here are some postcards I bought recently from paperchase for 10p each.
now, what I really wanted to tell you about is a great kids podcast called spare the rock, spoil the child that I discovered recently after much trawling through the Itunes lists. It is intended as kids music 'based on the radical notion that music for kids shouldn't make parents want to gouge out their ears'. as we have been driving about from place to place this summer and on the train we have been listening to this and it is great. go and listen and subscribe to the podcasts, a new one comes out weekly. They play they might be giants every show (remember little birdhouse in your soul???) who have now done kids cds not available in the UK though except on import, and lots of other cool stuff besides.
there are also some cool links on the site worth visiting too, my faves are I think small ages and the lovely Mrs Davis, both offer more insights into music for kids that is ok for parents to listen to too.
today is my 100th post, so first one to leave me a lovely message will get a parcel of yummy UK candy and chocolate!
